8 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi, everyone. I'm Susan. Welcome to my world – an experience in which we engage in a unique partnership on what may be one of the most important journeys of your life. Are you feeling unloved, unappreciated, helpless, hopeless due to some unplanned reality in your life. Do you need healing from adversity such as the ending of a relationship, the loss of employment, an unexpected debilitating illness, the death of a loved one, post-partum depression. These are a few of life occurrences that may have us feeling we will never see the light in the darkness or rise out of the flood of emotion. No matter what the adversity, we each have the inborn resilience to either return to a previous "normal" or carve out a new "normal." On this journey, we are truly partners. Each of us has a part in the process of healing. I rely on my knowledge and skills to guide me in EMDR, CBT, CPT, DPT, or Mindfulness. New coping strategies help to reduce the intensity of symptoms and permit you to face whatever painful occurrence has come into your life. So…I invite you to invite me to share this journey.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In the first session, I introduce myself and answer questions regarding my treatment and what I expect of clients. I use Socratic questioning to obtain additional information beyond their questionnaire to determine the best treatment for the client and set an initial goal for coming for therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

One of my biggest strengths as a therapist is to form a strong therapeutic relationship with the client in a relaxed environment. I want my clients to know they are not alone in their healing process - that therapy is a partnership in which both the client and I work together to achieve wellness.

My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I use this treatment method with clients having a personality disorder.


I use EMDR with my trauma clients to focus on the current symptoms the client is experiencing that are associated with the trauma.
